Going through the kitchen cabinets at home I spotted a couple of packages of oats. I like my porridge in the morning but it is going in seasons. I go mad for a week and I stock up for a month and then I get bored.

Let’s find a new life to those poor porridge oats hiding in the kitchen.

Mornings are definitely better with your own Granola!

A great song : The Killing Moon by Echo and the Bunnymen.


  • 3 Cups of Oats.
  • 1 Cup with a mix of your favorite nuts: walnuts, sunflower seeds, linseed, almonds…
  • 1 Cup with a mix of sultanas, prunes, dates, figs…
  • 1/4 Cup of Honey.
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup.
  • A tea spoon of Cinnamon powder.
  • 1 Table spoon sunflower oil + 1 table spoon apple juice.
  • A pinch of salt.


Preheat the oven at 160 degrees.

Mix in a bowl all the ingredients except the Maple Syrup and the dried fruit. Mix well and place in a baking tray with baking paper.

Total baking time is 25-30 minutes. Every 7-8 turn around the granola with a spatula to make sure all become golden and crusty.

After 20 minutes,  add the Maple Syrup and dried fruits. Mix well and bake another 5-10 minutes.

Let it cool down completely and keep in a closed container.
